TikTok's Chicken Cobbler Is The Best Way To Use Red Lobster Biscuit Mix

If you're looking for a cozy blanket in the form of a one-pan recipe, then TikTok's viral chicken cobbler is definitely going to be your new go-to. The dish was created by Matthew Bounds, who goes by @yourbarefootneighbor on TikTok, and according to him, "It's the recipe that started it all." Many have recreated versions of this highly adaptable meal, but the original version can also be found in Bounds' cookbook "Come Fix You a Plate," alongside many other comforting dishes like French onion stuffed potatoes and s'mores bread pudding.

The protein comes from an always convenient shredded rotisserie chicken, and the cobbler aspect is where the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix comes into play. Start by melting a stick of butter in a baking dish, and then layer in the chicken and a bag of frozen peas and carrots. Rather than making the biscuits according to the package directions, the mix gets made with equal parts milk to create a pourable batter that goes on top of the meat and vegetables. Then, a combination of cream of chicken soup and chicken stock is poured on as the final layer.

You will be tempted to mix everything together, but do not do it! Once baked in the oven and golden brown, it's important to let it rest so that it can set. Something magical happens, and the liquids and biscuit mix transform into a tender, creamy, gravy-meets-dumpling topping with crisp edges and a custardy middle.

Make this chicken cobbler your own

This dish is based on powerhouse pantry ingredients and items you may already have in your fridge or freezer. Really, it's more of a method than a recipe that relies on super specific measurements, making it easy to adapt to your own preferences. Leftover pork chops cut into cubes or any kind of pre-cooked chicken will work. Some have also found that this recipe is a great way to dress up affordable canned chicken. Instead of frozen peas and carrots, you can use a bag of mixed veggies, cauliflower, broccoli, or green beans. If you want to make a vegetarian version, consider incorporating something like sauteed mushrooms to add some heft.

When it comes to the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix, don't forget to add the seasoning packet. Non-dairy milk will also work instead of whole milk, if you prefer. As for the cream of chicken soup, any other creamy condensed soup can stand in. Cream of mushroom, bacon, asparagus, broccoli, onion, or even cheddar cheese soup would all do the trick. Combine it with vegetable stock if you don't have any chicken stock on hand. If you prefer a more done biscuit topping for your cobbler, pour the soup mixture over the chicken and veggies first, and make the biscuit mixture the final layer.

What if you can't find the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix?

Whenever Matthew Bounds posts a video of himself making this chicken cobbler recipe, it tends to go viral. Then, he starts receiving messages from folks saying the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix is absolutely nowhere to be found. If that happens to you, don't worry. Your chicken cobbler dreams can still come true. Bounds suggests that you can add some spices to regular old Bisquick, and use that instead.

The seasonings in Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix include garlic powder, onion powder, and dried parsley, so that may be a good place to start. One TikTok user commented that they dress up Bisquick with garlic and onion powders, as well as Old Bay seasoning — which includes celery salt, red pepper, black pepper, and paprika — and shredded cheddar cheese. In fact, many folks who have tried this recipe also love adding fresh cheddar cheese into the mix for some extra cheesy goodness.
